Hyatt’s values [Respect, Empathy, Integrity, Creativity, Humility, Fun] define their culture.


 

Four Seasons has an extensive history, tracing its origins back to the1960s when its first hotel was born. From these humble origins, the group now finds itself responsible for 96 hotels in 41 countries. Their people-based culture is renown throughout the world of hospitality and the connection with their guests is a coveted distinction – one that they still uphold now and always.


 

Expedia Inc. is an Online Travel Agent, initially launched in 1996 as the first Microsoft internet property, at a time when the notion of booking via an OTA had nothing of the public support that they do nowadays.

As an efficient intermediary, Expedia Inc. promotes travel bookings for over 10’000 partners that operate in many different sectors such as airlines, consumer brands and accommodation.
